Bird Spikes R Us…A story about bird spike installation in Sheffield.

Bird spike installation in Sheffield.

There is a very true idiom stating that nothing is to be gained from “dumping” on your own doorstep both metaphorically and literally (err…!!). In terms of our avian friends, the latter can cause issues particularly relating to their quite natural “biological business” causing an unsightly mess, damage to property and vehicles as well as slippery surfaces that the Health & Safety Executive would have a field day in examining the relevant risk assessment.

Here at AB Aerials we love birds. We wonder at their beautiful plumage. We are entranced by the harmonies of bird song and are besotted by the eeriness of murmurations (a swooping mass of thousands of birds whirling in the sky above).

One thing we don’t pay homage to our bird’s uncanny ability to perch on TV aerials and release their recently digested meal on our cars, patios and if you’re really unlucky (or lucky depending on your disposition) our heads.

The effects of the of bird poo related assaults even shut down Rome for a while. It can be said that Rome wasn’t cleaned in a day!

 

It’s a dirty job, but…

Another great idiom of our time (not) is “it’s a dirty job but somebody has got to do it” and at AB Aerials we have robustly taken on that responsibility of deterring the perching and pooping of our feathered friends. The deterrent is the operative word here too. We don’t want to harm birds at all we just want to prevent them from landing, nesting and leaving droppings on your nearest and dearest object d’art or Grandparent.

What we do here at the animal-loving world of AB Aerials is install spikes that are made from high quality UV stabilised polycarbonate plastic which are both Eco Friendly and has no effect on the performance of the aerial or satellite dish so you’re free to ponder the profundity of Eastenders whilst secure in the knowledge you’re not going heads up next time you walk across the patio to hang the washing out.

 

The added benefits of bird spikes.

Bird spikes can be a revelation in reducing regular car and window washes. The bonus is that they are relatively cheap to install too.

The cost is around £65 to dismantle the aerial/satellite dish, install the spikes and subsequent reassembly and alignment. Not bad is it?

There may be Bluebirds flying over the White Cliffs of Dover but if you have AB Aerial installed bird spikes they are not going to land anywhere near you!!
